Fishing report for summer 2021.
It’s July and it’s been fast action packed fun with our family/kids trips. These trips are one of our most requested durring spring and summer. Sharks and whiting have been plentiful and continue to put a lots of smiles on happy kids and parents faces. So this section of the report is to address some questions we get asked all the time about what to expect on our family/kids trips and I wanted to answer some of those questions.
First, your trips start out with a short 10 min. boat ride into St. Simons Sound where your guide will look on the way for the pods of dolphins that frequent the sound and point them out if they are around.
After the short ride the anchor is deployed and the fishing starts. Fishing with either shrimp or quid on the bottom the action will start. You can expect to catch many different species of sharks from black tips, bonnet heads, and even small hammer head sharks, whiting, guitar fish are a rare catch and one of the coolest fish we see in the sound, rays, and sometimes big red fish frequent the other end of your rod. Sharks can be up to 30 pounds and put up on heck of a fights on light tackle while whiting not so much the fighters make for a great table fare if you are looking to take a few fish home.
We offer several leave time for our kids/family trips starting with morning trips which start at 7:30, 8, 8:30, or 9. then afternoons which start at 12,12:30, or 1pm and late afternoons which start at 2,2:30, 3, and 3:30pm. The 23 C-Hawk offers plenty of shade under it’s large bimini top and plenty of room. A cooler with ice/bottle water are provided, as well as sunscreen, and all licenses, tackle, and guide are provided on all our fun family and kids trips.
Inshore (back water, creeks, and bay)
Inshore fishing is also a favorite trips of our clients as well. Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum, Sheepshead and more are out there for the catching. Live shrimp under a popping cork is a local favorite but artificial lures such as D.O.A. paddle tails and shrimp will work wonders on the trout and redfish.
As fall closes in water temperatures will start to fall and the trout and redfish will start to school and feed in preparation for winter. Fall also brings in the big boys. Bull Red Drum move in to the beaches after spawning and are a great trip in October for clients looking to pull on. something a little bigger than our inshore trout. Live bait on the bottom is a must to catch these big boys and girls.
